Trophy is a complex and challenging exploration of the international big game hunting industry and the attendant conservation movement, that offers no easy answers to the difficult questions which it poses.

Including frank and intimate interviews with a diverse range of subjects, the film offers a thought provoking look of the issues at hand that will force viewers to reevaluate their own position on hunting and conservation. Although its stark imagery of animals being killed will be difficult viewing for many, its extensive pool of conflicting facts, figures and arguments is nonetheless essential viewing for anyone concerned with the role of humankind in the custodianship of the planet’s last remaining wilderness areas and the many species that are facing extinction.
